“Given the progress the company is making with our transformation, we believe now is an appropriate time to further shape the company’s brand as a leading global engineered materials business,” says Dante C. Parrini, chairman and chief executive officer. “While we will always be grateful to our founders and proud of our heritage when operating as the P. H. Glatfelter Company, today’s announcement is part of the continued actions we are taking toward building the New Glatfelter and further repositioning the company to deliver on our growth aspirations.”
The company will continue to use “Glatfelter” in everyday business relations and informal communications and will maintain its existing stock symbol on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: GLT). Coinciding with these changes, the address of the corporate headquarters will also change to reflect the new Charlotte location: 4350 Congress Street, Suite 600, Charlotte, NC, 28209 U.S.A. The company’s new name and headquarters address are effective immediately. The company anticipates trading under its new name and CUSIP on the NYSE on October 6, 2020.
